Theodor W Adorno regarded Mahler’s Symphony No.9 as “the first work of modern music”. Adorno’s teacher, Alban Berg, saw in it “the expression of a tremendous love for this world, a longing to live in peace and to savour Nature to its depths – before the arrival of Death. For it will inevitably come.”
This live recording of the composer’s last completed symphony is part of an on-going Leipzig cycle of Mahler’s symphonies. It confirms once more the Gewandhaus Orchestra’s reputation as an exemplary ensemble for the performance of Mahler’s music.
The highest level of performance culture combined with a sharply contoured, transparent, polished and detailed manner of playing, plus infectious verve and an unmistakable sound characterized by a darkly golden colour – these are qualities responsible for the Gewandhaus Orchestra’s international reputation.
Since the time of Bruno Walter, the orchestra has developed over the years a deep understanding of the works of Gustav Mahler, which in their collaboration with Riccardo Chailly has been continued.
